A little while ago I talked about a complete new version of the FV Community News plugin. This version will take advantage of the custom post type that WordPress supports. Today an alpha preview is available for you to see what direction the plugin is going into. Keep in mind that this version is not for use on a live website, since it can and probably will contain bugs!
Have a great idea for one of my WordPress Plugins? Now is your chance to get it implemented! Simply create an account, and post your idea on the forums.
The beta has been around for a while now, and since no major bugs have been discovered yet, I decided to make it public.
The first thing I decided to do with the plugin is remove some `useless` features. Mostly these are settings hardly anyone uses and just confuses people. What I want is the plugin to be super easy to use, not to much trouble with configuring and other stuff should be necessary.
I’m happy to announce that the Community News plugin is having some good progress at the moment.
A while ago I told you I would pick up the project again, and now version 2.0 will be soon ready for some test runs
If you are willing to help me test it, please throw me an email.
As soon as it is ready, everyone who contacted me will get a link to the beta version. For now, I don’t have a date when it will be done yet, but it will be soon.
After almost one year of inactivity, I’m back! Today I uploaded the new design for this site. Now that’s done, I will pick up the work on my Community News Plugin again.
The plugin’s code will be completely rewritten, and with that support for PHP 4 will be dropped. When that is done, new features will be implemented to make the plugin even better!
After one week of release, I already have a new version of my Community News plugin. This version has some improvements, new features, and some bug fixes:
- The submission moderation panel is improved and some bugs are fixed.
- The option that users must be logged in is added.
- The form is already filled in in parts for users who are logged in
- The captcha could be removed for users who are already logged in.
- The captcha image can now easily refreshed, using AJAX
- A nonce field is added to fight spam.
- I added an RSS 2.0 feed for the submissions.
- AJAX is now used to submit the form.
